Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

As I believe that more information can help a physician arrive at an accurate diagnosis, I would request you to answer the following questions:

•     How did you injure yourself?
•     Is there any bleeding or any wound that you can see?
•     Have you been experiencing any symptoms since the injury?

I would like to stress on the fact that if you have been experiencing any unusual symptoms like confusion, altered consciousness or severe headache, I would suggest that you call 911 and immediately get to the emergency room (ER) where they can order a Non-contrast CT scan of the head and rule out any serious condition.


Awaiting your reply.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh

Hi,

Good to hear from you again.

I am sorry for the trouble that you had in writing this again.

Please get in touch with your doctor and get your self examined at the earliest.

I think you may need some investigation like CT scan as already advised.

Normally after head injury some pain and swelling at the site is common, still as you are having some nausea along with difficulty in sleep, you need to get examined by a doctor for this.

This could be due to concussion, still full evaluations is must.

I hope this helps. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.

Wishing you speedy recovery.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
